More Information

Issues that are fixed or features that are added in this update

This hotfix rollup fixes the following issues and adds the following features that were not previously documented in the Microsoft Knowledge Base.
Issue 1
Nested groups are exported incorrectly with a trailing slash (/) in the CN.

Issue 2
If the AdminP process is not responding, the Connector seems to be hanging. The Connector will now throw an error and will move on to the next object.

Issue 3
The Connector doesn't create a contact in the primary address book on export.

Issue 4
Non-reference attribute values aren't keeping trailing white spaces.

Feature 1
The Connector now works when it runs in the 64-bit mode of the sync engine.

Feature 2
The Connector has a new option that is called "Use AdminP to update references." When this option is not selected, the export of reference attributes such as members will be a direct call and will not use the AdminP process.

Feature 3
You can now manually add secondary address books to the Connector and not depend on Directory Assistance to be installed and configured in Domino.

Feature 4
The Connector now uses event tracing for Windows (ETW) for logging instead of text files.
